Hello Clean Eaters!
Let me start off by saying that I LOOOOOVE a good salad! When I say a good salad, I mean one that is full of different flavors and textures, throw in some nuts with my crisp lettuce and you have a winner! I used to love going to a certain deli because they made the BEST salad (I mean it had feta cheese, walnuts, sunflower seeds, apples, grapes) and wanted to recreate it. I have always wanted to make a great salad at home but have always thought that I needed a lot of money to do so. In fact, to make these four different salads below, I only used four different ingredients!
Spinach - $1.99 bunch
Grape Tomatoes - .99c
Grated Romano Cheese - $2.70 package
Unsalted Sunflower Seeds - .64c from the bulk section
Haas Avocado - .58c each
Total - $6.90 (before taxes) / $1.73 each
For the price of less than 1 deli salad, I have made 4 different salads for the week. The same philosophy can be attributed to meal planning across the board! You save money and gain nutritional points when you make your own meals at home instead of eating out- and these salads are just one example!
